My take on Ben 10 time travel

[Each time we see future Ben he's different because Ben meeting his future self changes his future... (Like how if you saw yourself get hit by a car in the future, when you arrived at that point I'm time naturally you would know the car is coming and things would play out differently.) Ultimate alien series Ben was up himself and treated being a hero more like being a celebrity so his future self naturally has abilities that reflect that, letting his CELEBRITY face remain seeable at all times rather than the anonymity the watch provides with on demand alien disguises. Even his name "Ultimate Ben" is egotistical.]

Throwback music piracy thursday

[Not everyone remembers the days of pirating obscure "weird al" songs about Elmo killing the whole sesame Street crew, and uploading them to your personal Google music cloud to stream before Spotify even existed. Ofc that was after years of physically dragging these files around with you on an iPod. Shoutout to the other nerds upgrading the batteries in their *3rd Gen iPods]

Shoutout to duo lingo honesty this thing does not get enough credit

[My native language is English. I started learning French in highschool, but it never stuck. It's a relatively easy transition to go from one latin language to another, but it never held my attention. Today is my 201st day streak on duolingo, learning Arabic. I'm certainly still a beginner, but I actually remember and retain the things I have learned from it, because it's properly engaging. Duolingo has made something that is extremely difficult, so accessible and without causing frustration or losing motivation.]

My drug dependence journey

[As someone who was wrongly prescribed some very hardcore drugs for a problem I never had and then suffered immeasurable dependency and neological disruption as a result after extreme, and I mean extreme difficulty getting off them. Iam experiencing my self and consciousness and my sensory input in a fractured and disrupted way, and the amazing thing is, I have insight into how my brain gives rise to experience itself and the oddities it creates when things are not functioning correctly, especially when it comes to visual processing and modelling the physical world.]

All I know for sure is that I imagined up for myself, something in life far better than anything l've ever got to do, be, or have.

[No one ever wished up severe abuse, neglect, 3 hip replacements, etc. Sure, we get to choose our tesponses. But, when all you have to choose from is a rock or a hard place, then it doesn't seem to matter anyhow.]

TIFU by being born in a country that exported nuclear technology back in the day and my life sucks cause of it

[The Canadians sent them indians an (at the time) state of the art CANDU reactor, which they almost immediately detonated (look up 'smiling buddha test'). The domestic reaction to this incident caused Canada to immediately stop exporting technology for nuclear power, and eventually stop developing it. 60 years later and your favourite Indian restaurant isn't serving palak paneer today because the power is out again and they can't run the blender.]

I stayed in a hotel in Indonesia where they used the UK sockets (standard in neighbouring Singapore) but the TV was made with the two-prong Europe plug.

[I called the reception to send somebody up to change the TV for one with the right plug. The guy came up, stared at me as if I was dumb, and jammed the Europe plug into the UK socket.]

why i think American high speed rail is never gonna come

[Entirely cultural reasons. 1. ⁠We are overall extremely hesitant to invest infrastructure. We prefer to let things come close to outright collapse, or just let them actually collapse, before spending any money on them. 2. ⁠We are obsessed with personal automobiles and prefer to do most of our movement around where we live with them. This makes any other system of transportation very difficult to implement. Ridership will initially be very low, which creates cost challenges. And the population is very hesitant to accept any compromise in freedom of driving or subsidies for driving that might benefit other means of transportation. 3. ⁠We are also, relatively speaking, obsessed with individual land rights and hesitant both to give up land cheaply or to use existing eminent domain powers to buy up land and use it for infrastructure. 4. ⁠Historically, we fear cheap means of transit that connect areas of different socioeconomic profiles, due to the fact that it provides access to wealthy majority areas for racial minorities. I think we’re capable of overcoming all of these, but these are the real bedrock issues Americans have with mass transit. We don’t like to plan ahead, we don’t want it to get in the way of us driving everywhere, we don’t want infrastructure on or near our land, and we don’t want racial minorities to be able to go to the places where we live.]
